The  Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy (IRTP) Part C Policy Development Process Working Group of the GNSO (IRTP-C WG) is doing outreach for its meeting in Costa Rica

Date:  Wed, 14 March 2012 - 08:30 - 10:00
Room:  La Paz B

The IRTP-C WG is tasked to consider the following questions and make recommendations to the Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO) Council:

a) "Change of Control" function, including an investigation of how this function is currently achieved, if there are any applicable models in the country-code name space that can be used as a best practice for the gTLD space, and any associated security concerns. It should also include a review of locking procedures, as described in Reasons for Denial #8 and #9, with an aim to balance legitimate transfer activity and security.

b) Whether provisions on time-limiting Form Of Authorization (FOA)s should be implemented to avoid fraudulent transfers out. For example, if a Gaining Registrar sends and receives an FOA back from a transfer contact, but the name is locked, the registrar may hold the FOA pending adjustment to the domain name status, during which time the registrant or other registration information may have changed.

c) Whether the process could be streamlined by a requirement that registries use IANA IDs for registrars rather than proprietary Ids.

This is an open Working Group meeting and part of the meeting will be dedicated to obtaining community input and feedback on the charter questions under consideration.

Agenda Details:

See https://community.icann.org/display/gnsocouncilmeetings/IRTP+Part+C+F2F+Meeting for further details.

This is a 90 minute meeting:

- The first hour will be devoted to an open face 2 face meeting of the WG
- The last half hour will be a Q&A session.

The meeting will have the normal ICANN remote participation capability.  While the adobe will be monitored for questions, feel free to ask for the call-in number via the Adobe, if you are remote and want to participate via voice instead of typing.

For those traveling to CR - safe journeys all.  To others, I hope the Remote Participation works for you.
